So I'm completely new to everything it seems.. I've just finished most of my Masters course (just the dissertation to go; fingers crossed) and I've been thrust into the world of job hunting. I'm not really one for blogging either. I've dabbled, of course, but I've never stuck at it. Hopefully this will be the exception!
I've set up this blog as part of CPD23 which sounds like an excellent idea. Basically, each week I'll try out one or two tools as described in the CPD23 blog and then I'll write about my experience here. The idea is that I'll learn some new things and improve on what I already know and as a complete newbie to the professional world of librarianship I'm guessing there's going to be a lot to learn! Since plenty of other people will be trying this too, I hope that I can learn from their experiences as well.
I guess I should explain the name of my blog... I chose it because Techno music is a blend of old and new, combining styles such as funk and electric jazz with 'futuristic' themes. That is exactly how I personally like libraries to be. I love the old fashioned walls of books and traditional service, but I'm also fascinated by how the web and new technology can complement this and help make sure libraries remain relevant today and in the future.
